Carpet cleaning techniques

Depending on the nature of your carpet and the extent to which it's soiled, a cleaning company can implement several cleaning methods. Each cleaning method will have its own cost.

  • Dry cleaning is an effective method that doesn’t involve applying moisture to the carpet. Dry cleaning compounds are sprinkled into the underlying carpet in order to dislodge any stains and debris. While this method is less thorough than steam-cleaning, it’s quicker and more convenient to carry out. The cost of dry-cleaning varies between $0.14 and $0.30 per square foot.

  • Steam cleaning is perhaps the most thorough carpet cleaning method available. Hot water under high pressure is typically used to dislodge stains deep within the carpet. This method is effective for thick carpets that tend to accumulate stains and debris within their inner layers. For an average sized home of about ,2200 square feet, you can expect to incur between $120 and $235 for steam cleaning. The cost can also be as low as $70 or as high as $500 depending on the extent of cleaning that needs to be done. Shampooing can also be used in combination with steam cleaning in order to eliminate foul odors.

Selecting a carpet cleaning company near you

When looking for carpet cleaning services, it is important to consider a company that offers clear and transparent pricing. Read reviews and check their grades online. Consider no less than three estimates to ensure a competitive price, but to also get a good sample of the local service providers.
